Seminar Approaches Satellite Images, Aerial Photogrammetry and Unmanned Vehicles

The differences and applications of the images obtained through digital sensors, radar, in orbital or airborne vehicles are the themes for the seminar during the event

Today there is a diversity of sensors, on board of satellites, airplanes and unmanned vehicles, capturing analogical, digital, laser and radar images. This variety of geospacial products allows countless applications varying from the simplest to the most complex ones.

During MundoGEO#Connect, event which will take place from June 14 to June 16 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and which will gather over 3 thousand professionals, producers and users of geo-information, the remote sensing will be the theme of one of the several seminars. The participants will be presented with the features that differentiate each type of image, the applications of the obtained data by observing the Earth and how this technology may enlarge the results in private enterprises, in public institutions and in non-governmental organizations.

The seminar focus on the corporate users who need a faithful portrait of the terrestrial surface, from environmental, infra-structure, geosciences, public administration, agribusiness, among other areas, involved in the acquisition and processing of geospacial data.
